Laurelwood Pub and Brewery opened last Friday in Battle Ground, Washington. With multiple locations around Portland, Laurelwood has finally made their way north of the Columbia River into Washington. We’ve always liked Laurelwood – the pubs and the beers. To be honest, we’ve always liked Oregon as well – the pubs and the beers. It’s just that we’ve chosen to focus this blog on Washington’s beer scene. Now that Laurelwood has officially opened in Washington, we can talk about them without guilt or shame. The new location in Battle Ground is a full service brew pub with an extensive food menu and beer made on site.
Why Battle Ground? They have a few reasons. It is a fast-growing community within easy commuting distance of Portland. In fact, Clark County, WA is one of the nation’s fasted growing counties. Battle Ground is just 30 minutes north of Laurelwood’s “Sandy Blvd” location. Many of that pub’s patron are actually from across the river in Clark, County. What’s more, Mike De Kalb — one of the owners of Laurelwood — is a native of Battle Ground.
